NEW WORK:: GRAY: Gray-WebEdit-007

Gail Siegel, Retired Policy Director for the Cook County Clerk’s Office, 64. “I know it (going gray) bothered other people more than me. I was uncomfortable when they decided it was up for discussion and to give me unsolicited input. Still, there’s pleasure in the transition: from golden toddler locks, to brownish childhood mop, to dark adult curls, to silvery streaks.I’m always surprised and delighted when someone admires my hair. I used to get a lot of attention for my hair and I forget that feeling. It’s always nice to experience it again. I have been gratified when friends have decided, after looking at my hair, that they are going to stop coloring theirs. It’s happened several times. They ALWAYS look better.”
